Precessi 2007 Napa Red - Napa Valley. Big, well-balanced Bordeaux style blend from CA. Fruit-forward, very drinkable, and pairs well with red meats and hearty winter fare. Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.


Do Zoe 2013 Albariño - Rias Baixas. Yellow straw color with green hints. Intense aromas of fruits (pear, apple, lemon), as well as aromatic herbs and white flowers. Very intense in the mouth, with reminiscence of fruits and flowers. Elegant and persistent.Varietals: 45% Albarino, 31% Caino Blanco, 14% Treixadure, 8% Loureiro, 2% Godello.

Villa Maria 2013 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - New Zealand. This wine is bursting with aromas of passionfruit, kaffir lime, and gooseberry. It is powerful and juicy, displaying vibrant grapefruit notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, and balanced acidity.

La Crema Sonoma Coast 2013 Chardonnay - Sonoma County. This wine opens with layered aromas of vanilla, yellow plum, fresh peach blossom and ripe citrus. On the palate are flavors of Gravenstein apple framed by hints of sweet spice and shortbread. The end results is a broad, juicy, and beautifully balance mouthfeel.


Ramsay 2013 Pinot Noir - Napa, California. The nose shows classic Pinot Noir notes of raspberry and cherry, with lots of earthiness and lovely toasty oak. The mouth explodes with blueberry, Bing cherry, anise and toast. Even more striking is the depth and richness of the mouth-feel, like a rich, thick, red pillow for the mouth. The wine is very fruity, with blackberry characters and a big, rich, tarry and solid balance. The oak is refined and quite opulent in its “warm” characters.

Fleur des Templiers 2012 Malbec - France. A deep garnet-red robe which is characterized by brick-red tints. The nose combines ripened black fruits with spicy marks. The mouth-feel entices due by its fullness, richness, fullness as well as by the aromatic final on the palate.

Seven Falls Cellars 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - Wahluke Slope, Washington. Ripe black cherry and boysenberry layered with notes of caramel, mocha and black tea. Concentrated, full body with a smooth lasting finish. A MAW top seller.
